Schalke celebrating Lovenkrands signing

Schalke team manager Andreas Muller believes Peter Lovenkrands will be a valuable addition to the Bundesliga club's squad.

The 26-year-old winger joined Schalke on a free transfer from Rangers and has signed a three-year contract with the option of a fourth year.

And Muller feels the Danish international, who scored 18 goals last season, will help provide some much-needed firepower for the team.

'Peter is a lightning quick, left-footed player who loves to drive for goal,' Muller told the club's official website.

'In signing him we have increased our tactical options in attack.'

Although they finished fourth in the Bundesliga, Schalke scored just 47 goals in the league this season - easily the worst in the top six.

'The statistics for the season just ended show that we need to strengthen our strike force, in particular,' added Muller.

'Next season we want to play at a higher tempo again and Peter will be a great help to us in this respect.'

Lovenkrands impressed in Rangers' run to the last 16 of the Champions League last season and is ready for a new challenge after spending six years with the Scottish giants.

He also has the chance to link up with international team-mates Soren Larsen and Christian Poulsen.

'Schalke are a very big and good club with whom I want to win things,' said Lovenkrands, who has made 14 appearances for Denmark.

'Before making the move I spoke to Soren Larsen and Christian Poulsen about Schalke. What they told me confirmed the correctness of my decision.'

Lovenkrands joined Rangers in 2000 from AB Copenhagen for £1.3million, going on to score 54 goals in 180 appearances.

He also won two league titles and the Scottish Cup twice with Rangers, famously scoring a last-minute winner against Celtic in the 2002 final.

Schalke's signing of Lovenkrands follows those of Kaiserslautern hotshot Halil Altintop and Mathias Abel from Mainz, also on free transfers.
